Hi, I want to go on a contraceptive but I'm unsure as to which one is ideal for me. I have never been on any contraceptives before. I have read a lot online about IUD and implants but I'd like to get a doctors perspective on it first.

GP visit. Speak to your GP re your personal plans and history,your family history etc.The correct contraceptive chosen for you specifically should be totally safe.IUDs and implants are only a few of the choices.Remember that being on a contraceptive does not absolve you from practising safe sex.
